Gabourey Sidibe Slams Haters Of Her “Empire” Sex Scene

Gabourey Sidibe doesn’t give any fucks if you didn’t like watching her sex scene on FOX’s “Empire.” The 32-year-old actress portrays Becky Williams, who got some S-E-X on a rooftop with MCJ Poppa, played by actor Mo McRoe.

“After we were shooting it, the camera guy came over, and he said, ‘I’ve never shot a scene like this. And I’ve never seen a scene like this,'” Sidibe said. “I was really happy to be part of something that’s never been seen on primetime television before. And you don’t notice it because you don’t have to notice it, but there’s never been someone of my skin color, my size, with somebody else of the same skin color in a love scene on primetime television.”

This is awesome. And honestly, aren’t you tired of watching skinny white people rub their chalky bones together? Someone’s going to start a fire. (Though we do support skinny white people’s right to sex each other! We’ve just seen a lot of it!)

But of course, some people are being awful about Sidibe’s sex scene.


But Sidibe’s reaction is so cool. She doesn’t even have time to learn about her haters. Why? “I keep hearing that people are ‘hating’ on it,” she said. “I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked.”


Sidibe said she was nervous shooting the scene, but then told McRoe the only way she could do it is if she didn’t worry about him. She said she told him, “I’m going to do what I want with you, and you’re going to be fine with that.”

And he was like, “Yeah, I’m fine with that.” HOT.

May all of our sexual encounters be as confident as Sidibe on a Hollywood rooftop.
